Mission co-operative cleanup: Mergers and hits
Jalgaon district is amongst one of pouring hubs of co-operative movement in the state. District has more than 800 co-operative societies and large number of co-operative banks as well. Last three years have been pretty harsh for this sector with large number of reports and cases of alleged mis-utilisation of funds and societies going down on higher number of non-performing assets.
Continued degrading financial status led to almost zero inflow and large pre-maturity withdrawals of deposits. This further imbalanced budget as most of deposits got invested in long term assets along with loans and advances. Many of borrowers took this decline as advantage and turned defaulters and slow payers. Woes continued for common investor as its deposit principals turned in troubles. Mal-practices nourished here with many panic customers settled deposits against loans, against 80-50% of principal invested and many against principal only. The dozing State Co-operative department failed to retain common investor faith and confidence and did not bother to come up with a systemised solution for such grievances.
Ceiling always leads to filtering and the same is implying here. Many of well managed and financially strong co-operatives have taken initiatives. These steps include merging of existing financially down societies with them. Further encouraging steps like co-operative banks taking over societies are yet to seen aspects. These mergers could only turn successful and replicated only when key concerns like good recovery ratio of loans in indebted societies, ability to regain customer confidence and most importantly to introduce cleaner and transparent business policy.
